- What if my student has taken Algebra 2 from another curriculum? Where do I start?
If your student has already taken Algebra 2, but has not had Trigonometry, this course package is still the one for you. We have added a guide to our syllabus that walks you through how to take this course as just a trigonometry course. Download the Teachers Guide that contains these instructions.
- What about a pre-calculus course?
Basically, pre-calculus is the same as Algebra 2 with Trigonometry. A good pre-calculus course will take a student through graphing, functions, polynomials, exponentials, and trigonometry. These are the same subjects covered in Algebra 2 with Trigonometry. If you compare the textbook’s contents in both subjects, they are identical except for a few minor details and arrangement. By either name, they both prepare a student to take calculus and do well on college entrance exams. Taking both courses would be to repeat the material.
